Ranger-Led Field Trips

Grand Canyon National Park provides the perfect outdoor setting to enhance classroom based learning. Each spring and fall rangers lead 2.5 and 5 hour long field trips for grades 3-12. During the programs, park rangers guide students through Grand Canyon geology, ecology, and human history. All field trips are curriculum-based and free of charge; most take place on the South Rim.


Classroom Rangers

Would you like a park ranger from Grand Canyon to visit your classroom?

In January and February each year park rangers travel throughout Arizona, southern Utah, and the Las Vegas area, conducting one-hour-long educational classroom activities and school assemblies.

All programs are curriculum-based and free of charge.
